Here we show you how to quickly and effectively use a tattoo clamp to tattoo your rabbit’s ear with a breeder ID number. This rabbit is 8-weeks old and we are using a Stone brand 5/16″ tattoo clamp with an ear release. Always tattoo the breeder number in the left ear. The right ear is reserved for the rabbit’s registration number.
This rabbit does scream in the video so be prepared. He was not hurt, he was just startled. One screamer out of thirteen rabbits tattooed isn’t too bad! But of course it had to be the one we were filming as an example that screamed. Oh well. The little guy was just fine once he realized it was over in no more than a second. This is the very reason I will never use rabbit tattoo pens! Imagine five minutes of that while you try to neatly write the number on the inside of his ear. I think not. Clamps win.
